Sound volume of mplayer plugin very low in seamonkey
« on: August 11, 2008, 02:26:58 am »

I remember that the low volume has been mention before
but I fail to find it now. Despite me used alsamixer in konsole
and set related to 72 % the sound still was very low which it
isn't in the other distros. So what could it be that makes it so.

What can I do to get it higher?

I tested to open another linux distro. Which had a volume some
20 to 30 db higher. relatively subjective but enourmous difference.

Set the alsamixer volume to 100% and make sure you don't have some channels muted (such as PCM). Use the "m" key to mute/unmute. Play a sound file while doing this so you do it interactively.

I tried to do as you said but still much lowr output than with other
distros. But zenwalk has same low output so maybe it is that
different distros make use of different drivers and I need to
download same driver as Nimblex and Puppy linux make use of.

Just now I have to concentrate on saving changes cause no use
downloading drivers if I need to download same next time I start up.
